LibriVox recording of Emma by Jane Austen. Read by Sibella Denton. Emma is a comic novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1816, about the perils of misconstrued romance.

LibriVox recording of Lady Susan, by Jane Austen. Jane Austen demonstrated her mastery of the epistolary novel genre in Lady Susan, which she wrote in 1795 but never published.

LibriVox recording of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Read by Karen Savage. Miss Frances, the youngest Ward sister, "married, in the common phrase, to disoblige her family, and by fixing on a lieutenant of marines, without education, fortune, or connexions, did it very thoroughly. She could hardly have made a more untoward choice." Some years later, pregnant with her ninth child, Mrs. Price appeals to her family, namely to her eldest sister and her husband, Sir Thomas Bertram, for help...
